I get a error message," engine requires 16,24 or 32 bit mode". I installed the game on drive D. Changed the path start drive accordingly to what you provided.
You must leave your shortcut pointing at where the file is on YOUR system. My string is just an example of how mine is set up. And I am not using the 1126b version which uses a Beta2 install folder. I don't use it so I can't accurately say what the path should be .
The best thing is to use Explorer to navigate to where the game is on your D: drive and make a new shortcut of the game file War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe (Just right click on the file name, choose Create Shortcut, and then copy or drag the shortcut to your desktop. At that point the shortcut will have the correct path to get to the game file. Then just put in the switches you want after the end of the quote (") marks.
Be aware that my switch choices are what works on my system and you may have to try different things for your particular computer, video card, monitor and OS setup. There are some lengthy threads in this Tech forum that deal with people's switch issues and what combinations they tried that worked. Please read them to get a feel for what to try. My only advice is to only change one thing at a time before testing it out.
